Arcimoto, Inc.®, (FUV) makers of the Fun Utility Vehicle® (FUV®), Rapid Responder™, and Deliverator™ — affordable, practical, and joyful pure electric vehicles for everyday commuters and fleets — announced today that it has signed its first rental franchise, which will open in the Florida Keys and be operated by Key West-based franchisee R-KEY-MOTO, LLC.
“We think Key West will be an amazing home for our first rental franchise and pilot of our rental franchise model,” said Arcimoto founder and president Mark Frohnmayer. “We are very excited to partner with the R-KEY-MOTO team, combining their local market expertise and resources with Arcimoto’s ultra-efficient and very fun vehicles.”
Located at the Stock Island Marina Village, the new FUV Hub location will house 21 FUVs to be used as rental vehicles for tourists and cruise ship passengers to explore Key West, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. In addition, the FUV Hub will share vehicles with the A&B Marina Complex and the Perry Hotel Key West. Guests will be able to rent FUVs directly from the concierge and explore Stock Island and Key West.
“We are absolutely honored to open the first Arcimoto rental franchise in the Florida Keys, and we hope to set the standard of what an FUV rental experience can be,” said Michael Raymond, principal of R-KEY-MOTO. “As a zero-emission, stable-platform vehicle with protection from the weather, the FUV is a superior fit for the Keys and perfectly encapsulates the Key West motto: Close to perfect, far from normal.”
The Florida Keys will be the first Arcimoto rental franchise, and the fourth FUV rental location, with partnerships previously announced with Hula Multimodal in San Diego and Encinitas, Calif., as well as with GoCar Tours in San Francisco. In the Arcimoto franchise model, rental franchises will utilize Arcimoto branding and technologies, including the Arcimoto mobile app, to create a one-of-a-kind tourism experience and unforgettable joyride.
